Did You Know?
The long montage of the Kids of Springfield playing was directed by Bob Anderson
and is making a satirical point by saying the opposite of what the writers believed. The segment was written by John Swartzwelder
and the idea of using Beethoven's 6th Symphony was in the original script. James L. Brooks
had wanted the episode to end with the montage, but the writers disagreed. See more
